Power packs wear out

Usually people have old power pack and then remove all the bulbs while replacing and doing maintenance, and the old power pack burns up because it has no load. Unplug power pack when replacing all the bulbs, and keep burned-out bulbs replaced

In your case, the plastic gears have gotten dirty over time. Gears are probably worn. Un-plug power pack and spray WD-40 in and around plastic dial. Turn dial to see if it gets better.

Select power pack

Power pack should match total wattage of bulbs

10 - 20 watt bubs = 200 Watt power pack

10 - 15 watt bulbs = 300 Watt power pack

My car is loseing compression when you press on the gas pedal

That doesn't mean it's losing compression. It can only possibly lose compression from internal wear or sticky valves or stretched timing chain or catastrophic failure - it can't lose compression one moment, then regain compression the next moment except in cases of sticky valves or stretched timing chain.

I doubt you have any of these issues, unless your car is pretty badly worn. What's happening is your car has lost most of its POWER, not compression.

At any rate... if it's a modern car, get the computer's error codes with an OBD (if pre-1987) or OBDII (1997 and later) scan tool. If no codes or engine older than about 1987, suspect poor or old gasoline, fuel pressure or flow rate, clogged air filter, weak coil, plugged exhaust, various ignition-related issues, park brake set, accelerator linkage, serious mechanical problems (wheel bearings, etc). This isn't a question that warrants a quick "silver bullet" answer, there are TONS of things that might cause you to lose the ability to accelerate.

How long can the Razor MX500 Dirt Rocket be ridden after charged?

Run time depends on a few things, including the weight of the rider, the terrain being riden over and the condition of the bike.
For example, a light rider riding on flat hard packed dirt or paved road with a bike that is in good mechanical condition - tires inflated to correct pressure, chain correctly adjusted/lubed, brakes adjusted, etc. - will have a longer run time than a heavier rider on soft undulating dirt with a bike that has not been maintained.
Generally you should be able get 40-45 minutes out of a new battery.
Check out the trouble shooting guide and user manual if you are getting less than half and hour.

How much chan lubricant should be used and what is the grade of the oil

You want to buy Bar grade oil, it is sticky and stays on the chain, it will properly lube the bar and chain with a full tank o gas. People have used, used motor oil but this wears down the chain and gears from the micro sized filings in the oil so use clean bar oil to lube the chain correctly. also if the chain sprocket has a small hole in the tip of the saw you will need to buy a gear lube pump to keep grease in the gear at the tip of the blade. This should be lube each time you fill the fuel tank and once half way threw the tank of fuel to make the bar last longer. The bar oil is a special grade of oil and requires bar oil for it to adhere to the bar and the bar guides. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

Key wont unlock the drivers door

The tumblers in the lock are maybe getting sticky, as far as you know it's the original door and lock, on the vehicle? Go to an auto parts store and get some lock lube, squirt some into the lock. Now, work the key in and out a few times and try to turn it. Keep working the key in and out and squirt lube in the lock. If it's the correct lock with the matching key it should loosen up.

Paper keeps getting stuck in the fuser. Do I need to replace the fuser? I've never replaced it. It's about 3 years old. The paper gets part way in and is folded like an accordion. I've cleared it about...

If it's 3 years old, it might need replacing.

There are two factors. One is that the fuser (hot) rollers get contaminated with toner residue, resulting in them getting sticky. The sheet sticks to the roller, and instead of being fed straight through, it gets bent with the direction of roller rotation, and is pushed under the separator pieces.
The second is that the separator "tongues", that should facilitate separating the sheet from the roller and directing the paper to the output, deteriorate over time. They are plastic, and subject to prolonged heat, so after some time they tend to lose their shape, get cracky etc.

Replacing the fuser is not a hard task, OKI is rather modular in it's construction. The instructions should come with the new fuser unit, and also you can look for directions on OKI website.

Good luck :)
